Two of them are the Tio Ximo and Almadrava coves, two small extensions of less than 100 meters enclosed between rock formations.
Although its sands are thick, here you can enjoy the sun and bathe in very clear waters in the middle of an unusual silence in this area of Spain.
If you want to enjoy a less known beach in Alicante and equally beautiful, do not hesitate to go to Cala El Maraig in the Benitachell area about 20 minutes from the much visited Moraira and Xávia.
El Maraig is one of the most charming coves from Valencia, but if you are looking really different you can get there with a little effort and climbing some steep walls to the neighboring cove Los Tiestos.
Los Tiestos cove is distinguished by the absence of noise, the tranquility of its waters and its soft-textured sands.

Among these is La Barraca, which is located between Cap Prim and Cap Negre and whose very clear waters are ideal for lovers of diving and snorkeling.
